24 Jul Make the most of your summer with Flexible Working Solutions
We’ve been graced with a rare sunny summer – the first one in many years! But are your employees getting a chance to get out and enjoy it? The summertime can be a particularly busy period for workers. Holiday time, family commitments and entertaining the children all vie for people’s time. The many benefits of flexitime are particularly noticeable during the summer when workers become increasingly stretched for time.
We all know that flexible working arrangements bring many positives to an employee’s life. During the busy summer months, employee’s want to have a good quality work/life balance. With flexitime, this balance is easier to achieve. Using flexible working, employees gain ownership and control of their working hours allowing them to better manage responsibilities and activities outside of work. With Flexible working arrangements, employees can make more use of long summer evenings spending time with family and relaxing. This way, employees can enjoy reduced levels of stress, increased energy and motivation, and above all: improved job satisfaction.
